if only every school in the district could have the dedicated teachers and staff that spring hill has. my daughter graduated from this school last year and i only wish they had a middle school program as well. every teacher and staff member in the school knew my child and encouraged her to excell. the caring and involvement of the staff is the best i have seen in any school anywhere. if you want your child to succeed this is the school where it will happen. a great school always.

The teachers need to learn start paying attention to students, not other teachers. The principal needs to come out of his office, he hides in there. The teachers and principal need to learn our kids are their responsibility while on school grounds and if they can't keep our kids from being bullied and feel unsafe, maybe they don't need to be teachers. Also when a parents has a concern it needs to be addresses, instead of ignored.
